      Great for us oldies!
      With age catching up with me but a young spirit inside, any help I can get is very much appreciated. As a keen cyclist in my younger days, this was my first taste of an ebike and im hooked. The tour was beautiful and made me realise once again why I love South West England so much. Highly recommend this tour for all ages and interests.

      A weekend of beauty, energy, and joy
      And suddenly, there it was. The sun setting to my left, the golden small hill to my right with cute and curious cows walking about and grazing peacefully. The wind rustling the leaves of the trees behind me. There it was, and that was all that was. In this life, I am still unsure about the right questions to ask. But I am sure that that moment, that time of beauty, is at least one of the answers. In a place where others could have just seen a farm, Jey, a man of vision, and his partner Zoe, saw a Surf and Yoga retreat. Where others just saw an empty field, they saw a beautiful pond. And they dug it out themselves with their bare hands, carving their dream one shovelful at a time. Victor was our host. A man-boy who carries the immaculate purity of the free spirits. A man it would pain to see caged in an office job in a big city. A soul of movement, balance, and honesty. The community of instructors - a small community in a small town. Kindling the fire of the surf spirit and keeping it alive. The friends of the instructors, who flocked over once the day was done, like little birds coming to check out what is new in the garden. I could speak of facilities, price, and comfort, but that is not what I’ll remember from this trip. I live of impressions, stories, and memories, and these are the ones I’ll bring with me. Perhaps, so should you?

      Superb Service
      Great service, bikes were so easy to ride. We were given guide of where to travel which was great. We had a bit of bother on the way when we lost our key for the bike lock, of course the bikes were locked. Jay was with us within 10 minutes and could not have been nicer. Thanks a million, much appreciated.

      Amazing Adventure and Great Instruction
      Being for a week in Cornwall, this was our absolute highlight during the stay. We know climbing and moutaineering and also have some experience in canyoning, but climbing, swimming and above all safely jumping from spots we would never have considered to do so without the great instructions from Matt and the entire team was a complete new and exciting experience. Coaststeering is definitely a much different and fantastic way to experience the fantastic coastline of Cornwall. Thanks so much for this great opportunity. We will definitely coasteer again! Sonja

      Great Morning Coasteering!
      Second time doing this activity. Loads of fun and a great experience. There were 5 of us ranging in ages from 13 to 40 plus and it was suitable for all. The guides were really great - helpful and made the morning run really smoothly. Would recommend this for anyone visiting Newquay who wants to try something a bit different.

      Amazing day out!
      We had SO much fun renting the e-bikes and saw so much more of Newquay than we would have seen on foot or a normal bike. Highly recommend and the best Newquay bike hire around. Super friendly team and great service. Not to be missed!

      Newquay coastering
      We arrived at the shop to our guide Viktor, he was a happy guy and had a smile on his face. The Cornish wave team provided us everything we needed to enjoy our adventure. We left promptly at the time allocated after gearing up and making ourselves ready. We walked less than 10 minutes from the shop and arrived at our starting point. Viktor briefed us on all aspects and safety was paramount. We had such a brilliant time and made some great memories, we managed to undertake low level water entry, climbing, scrambling,sea swimming and high level rock jumps into the sea. Our guide Viktor was very knowledgeable of the area and considered all levels of experience and comforts of all within our group. We even caught a glimpse of a grey seal on our adventure,we would highly recommend this trip if you are in the Newquay area. These guys are great at what they do. Thanks again from Shaun and Jo.

      Very professional and friendly, some amazing sites with an experience guide. Had lots of fun and everything was as advertised and the well made snacks on trip and the thoughtfulness of bringing water along. Would absolutely recommend to anyone to give it a try. I look forward to participating once again

      Newquay Coasteering with Cornish Wave
      We had a great time in Newquay coasteering with Cornish Wave. We were able to get changed in their shop and being able to shower afterwards was really helpful. The coastline there was so interesting with jumps, climbs, whirlpools and a swim through cave if you were brave enough. There was even a quick history lesson about smugglers and a look in the caves they mined out to store their contraband. Thanks to Kate for a brilliant morning.

    Over the half term week, we had one group lesson and two private couples lessons, all with the brilliant instructor Max. We had the most amazing time, progressing throughout the lessons and by the end of the week we came away very confident and independent enough to surf by ourselves before leaving Newquay. Max made the lessons fun and relaxed, and all the guys were really friendly and professional - we'll definitely come and say hi next time we visit!

    Absolutely fantastic experience and one that my partner & I will remember! We toured the South West this summer and the morning we spent with Gregor teaching us the basics on surfing was definitely a highlight! He was a fantastic instructor - very professional, but also really funny and engaging.
    The price as well was excellent value for money, compared to other providers in the area.
    All in all a class experience and wholeheartedly recommend!

    Thanks Greg and your team - what you do is great!

    Our surf lesson was so fun!! Our instructor, Lou, was so kind and really helpful - she made such an effort with our group.
    The lesson was such good value. I often saw other surf shops advertising lessons for much more than £30, so I would choose Cornish Wave any day.

    Whilst we were in Newquay, me and my boyfriend chose Cornish Wave for our surf lessons and for coasteering as well.

    The whole experience for both events was brilliant and the staff were all very welcoming and helpful. We went coasteering with Victor who was great, and appreciated his facts about the Newquay coastline. It was a lot of fun and we felt completely safe with his company.

    For surfing we were with Phil who was a brilliant teacher. He was really patient, informative and genuinely seemed to enjoy taking the lessons which gave off great vibes for the day. We both managed to stand up which was a win!

    Thanks again!

    Wow, Greg, you did it again. What an amazing surf instructor, so informative, patient and passionate at his job. Every member of the group was stood up by the end of the session, all thanks to your encouragement. A lot better than previous surfing experiences we’ve had in cornwall, he split the session into two, therefore made it accessible to everyone and we weren’t overwhelmed with surfing theory. Cannot recommend this company and good looking Greg enough. 😊 He genuinely seemed to care about every member of our group!
    Thanks Cornish wave,

    Me and my partner had a beginner surfing lesson with Gregga/Gregger and we had the best time! He was so informative and supportive. We felt really safe in the water, and felt confident to keep our boards for the rest of the day and continue to surf after our lesson finished. Everyone at the shop was really nice and helpful. Would 100% recommend, and would love to go back for more lessons. I think the price was really reasonable and all the equipment was in great shape for hire equipment.

    It was fantastic and my son who’s
    9 managed to find a wave, get up on his board and surf about 5 or six times by the end of the lesson. He’s had a few lessons before but has never managed to surf as much! Also, we hired the board and wetsuits to the end of the day as he enjoyed it so much and wanted to carry on to the end of the day. They both loved it. 👍

    We had our first surfing lesson with Greg this week and it was AMAZING! The team made sure we were going to be warm enough before we left, and kept us safe the entire time we were in the water. Having never surfed before and being pretty shy of the sea, I got absolutely battered by the waves but I had THE best fun and Greg made me feel safe the entire time. I managed to stand up for a split second too!

    We also went coasteering and thoroughly enjoyed that too! Again, safe enough, warm enough, well guided as we traversed some rocks and jumped into the sea! We even saw a seal :D

    Great team, great experience, thoroughly recommend them. Thanks for giving us an awesome day.

    Absolutely loved it! Always wanted to try surfing and now I'm totally hooked - wish I'd tried it years ago!

    Gregor was a great teacher - put everyone at ease and did a brilliant job of supporting everyone even though we were all progressing at different speeds. Staff back at the shop were friendly and helpful too.

    We paid to keep the equipment for the rest of the day so fuelled up on fish and chips then went straight back to the beach. Perfect way to spend a day!

    We had a great time learning to surf. We booked the group session but luckily we were the only two people on the session so we had lots of time with our instructor. We were very lucky with the weather and the waves were perfect for beginners. We felt very safe and relaxed on the lesson and there was a perfect mix of guidance and letting us have fun and make mistakes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend booking with these guys!
